Big K.R.I.T. – TDT (Album Review)

In my short few years of blogging I’m finally reviewing one of my favorite artist!!! Big K.R.I.T had quite the 4th quarter finish in 2018. Mississippi’s very own gave us a three-peat of hard hitting EPs. In two week intervals, K.R.I.T. delivered ‘Thrice X’ (November 16, 2018), ‘Double Down’ (November 30, 2018) and ‘Trifecta’ (December 14, 2018). Prior to these releases K.R.I.T was relatively quiet. … Read More Big K.R.I.T. – TDT (Album Review)

The perfect emotional balance is reached with James Blake’s new studio album, Assume Form. With James Blake’s latest installment, he features an interesting mix of features.

There was a lot of excitement upon this release!    His last full-length project ‘The Colour in Anything’, was released in 2016 so you could … Read More James Blake – Assume Form (Album Review)

Vic Mensa – Hooligans (EP Review)

Vic Mensa delivers an EP that provides emotional depth with a healthy serving of insight. Vic is an artist that i see as one of the more genuine acts in music. Yes i said it. Its a fair statement to being that he’s almost 10 years in! Vic has this remarkable ability to blend creative wordplay into personal/sociable conscious rap. ‘Hooligans’ definitely served as … Read More Vic Mensa – Hooligans (EP Review)

First off I would like to congratulate Wifisfuneral on making XXL’s 2018 Freshmen list! Wifi is definitely one of my favorite artist among the new age rappers. Wifi is different. With sheer tenacity and a mind bending flow and delivery to channel his raps, the Palm Beach, Florida rapper, is becoming quit the star with a consistent growth in his following.

Kanye West – Ye (Album Review)

Following the release of Pusha T’s ‘DAYTONA’ album, which was solely produced by Kanye, Kanye delivered his own album a week later and it could not have been at a better time. ‘Ye’ like ‘DAYTONA’, is a 7 – track project. The anticipation for this album was through the roof for some and meant nothing to others (apparently). From his open support of Donald … Read More Kanye West – Ye (Album Review)

Dave East – P2 (Album Review)

There are so many acts in today’s hip hop market. Harlem’s very own, Dave East, demands attention in this overcrowded market. ‘P2’ is the sequel to last year’s exquisite release, ‘Paranoia: A True Story’. On ‘P2’ the Nas co-sign carries on that New York rap tradition that true hip hop fans LOVE and WISH THERE WERE WAS MORE OF. Immediately, Dave gives us an … Read More Dave East – P2 (Album Review)

Aminé “OnePointFive” (Review & Stream)

Aminé basically has been MIA all 2018. He tweeted out last Monday about having “albums ready” so obviously he’s been keeping things low-key but working round the clock.

YG – Stay Dangerous (Album Review)

Last week, YG’s highly anticipated third studio album, ‘Stay Dangerous,’ was released! After week one the numbers are in…. ‘Stay Dangerous’ did 55.5K first week! Is this good? I’m not sure but he met his projected amount! I am very surprised the projection numbers weren’t larger. ‘Stay Dangerous,’ the follow up 2016’s ‘Still Brazy,’ is equipped with 15 tracks with guest appearances from Nicki … Read More YG – Stay Dangerous (Album Review)

The Weeknd – My Dear Melancholy (Album Review)

I don’t mind stating the obvious. I’m pretty damn late on reviewing this project. What’s important is that I am here now and ready to tackle a Weeknd project that seemed to be loved by all my peers. Anyways, The Weeknd returned to the scene back in late March with his six-track EP “My Dear Melancholy.” When he first appeared back in 2011, he dropped three … Read More The Weeknd – My Dear Melancholy (Album Review)

Justine, Justine…❤ Over the past few years we’ve seen an upward trend of new R&B female artists with many who have started to make their mark and solidify a solid fan base.

Pusha-T – DAYTONA (Album Review & Stream)

‘DAYTONA’ is a complete project that makes you wish it was a 14- track project rather than seven but at the same time you appreciate Kanye and Pusha-T’s decision to keep it short and sweet. Some critics say Push shows a lack of evolution. I think it depends on perspective. Push sticking to what he knows works!
